About this creation
It just so happened that on the eve of the eve of the midsummer nights eve, a strange man from the east strolled into Castle Terrinsburg with a simple stand, a chest of precious stones, and a fearsome creature from the underworld.
What can it be? William the Blacksmith says to act now and ask questions later. Better yet, let his axe to the talking.
The rest of the people seem content with merely running away like Phipson from Heather who messed up while putting on lipstick. Even Miss Hegglesberry readily leaves her cheese stand to flee from the undeniably frightening creature. What will save them all? (Assuming the blacksmith's plan failed)
The answer lies...beneath their feet.
In other news, you know you screwed up when the back of your MOC looks better than the front.
Here we have Miss Hegglesberry. Her motto? "One cheese, two cheese, three cheese, green cheese". Don't you love that slimy sensation mold leaves on the roof of your mouth?
It's like margarine, but better!
Well, I guess that's all for now. Nothing big this time. Though, now that my temple is destroyed I am drunk with brick power. I can build ANYTHING! Well, not really...but you get the picture.
Oh yeah, here's two more pictures for your viewing pleasure...
Oh, and about that Heather vs. Lipstick thing...don't ask. Just don't ask.
i like how you did the archway to the wall, i did that once but i put an archway then smaller archway behind it so it looked like it was going into the wall i didn't post it though because it was a couple of years ago... oh and i'm asking?
This is a lovely creation, with some great detail. As I said before your building skills and level of maturity had me mistake your age by a good decade. Nice to meet you in person in Seattle, but remember - Heather is mine, all mine. Lee.

JD... Look dude, don't sweat the stuff that the little guys say. You are coming up and in a different league now. Still a TFOL but almost an AFOL, in fact, your name carries a lot of respect with the AFOLs here. This build is a strong one, be proud of it. You've come a long way and you still have far to go, I look forward to watching. ~dave
So you found a use for the mysterious black hallway, and fixed the crookedness. Excellent work
I like it

Better than your last on but realy you have the BIG GRAY WALL problem this may help with that http://www.classic-castle.com/howto/articles/biggraywall.html but over all it's good but still just a 3 star.
and if you think I'm bluffing about the WIP stuff I can post it for 1 or 2 days after see this comment but you still did do a good job just read the thing above and you can see why it's only 3 star.

What I mean by better is I like it more but you do have the BGWS realy it's got one shade of gray for the wall and not much texture and the WIP will be post later tonight or tomorow morning. and as far as why I am going harder on you than I do on most people is because I see alot of work in your mocs but they are in need refineing and so in other words a see alot of potetial.
To get a idea of what I see this may sound wierd but your mocs are holding on to the higher edge of normal but don't want to let go and fall into the lake of awsome so bonus points if you could understand that and now I need to take photos of my WIP.
Nice one JD. You do use A LOT of grey in your work, as do I. I can point out some positive effects it had on your little MOC here. First, the plain grey brings out the food and minifig colors out very clearly, almost as if it catalysts as a background. The grey also allows for an emphasis on the floor and other details that you might want the view to look at immediately. Great effort. -Dylan
Quoting Blade Bat
Better than your last on but realy you have the BIG GRAY WALL problem...
Hey Blade, I appreciate your desire to give good advice. Really I do. But I am going to disagree with two of your points here. First off, no, this is not better than my last. Sorry if I'm being rude, but it's not. Second, while I been known to come down with the big grey wall syndrome, but I did not have it while making this. Sorry. If you are speaking of the brick underneath the marketplace, then perhaps I failed to mention that it is underground. As in, I used the grey to fill it in like Darkspawn has used black. If you look at the actual wall, you will see that it is not, I repeat NOT merely a big grey wall. I have been around the interwebs for a while and have been building castle longer. Every time I build something I consider the BGWS; I am not ignorant to such things. Deal? =)
"...and a fearsome creature from the underworld." That's funny, I didn't know you knew my mother in law? Nice work JD! I've recently begun dabbling in the castle theme and have a new respect for those that do it well(that would be you). Nice work! ~ Chris.
